Mayweather Wins Big on the Wizards

It looks like the Wizards weren't the only ones who came out of Tuesday's game as winners.

Check out the bet that boxer Floyd Mayweather tweeted out a picture of last night.  He put his faith -- and $25,000 -- in the Wizards at halftime, betting that they'd maintain their lead over Portland.

The bet was placed at M Resort in Las Vegas, and the Wizards' 124-109 win meant Mayweather walked away with a cool $20,833.35. It's pocket change for the big-spending brawler, but it's not often that someone has this much confidence in the Wizards.

It was also the first time in franchise history that the Wizards have won back-to-back games on the road by more than 15 points.

The Wizards play the Clippers tonight, and online betting site Bovada currently has the Wizards at +13. Maybe Floyd will let it ride.
